Ha ha ha ha ! That' pretty funny ! If I had to experience it that way, especially the kid oriented stuff I would most likely feel like you about this !
I was one of those kids who saw "Astro Boy" , when it came on in late 63 . I got into it in the late 90's , due to influence from the "kids" ( I worked at a Tower Records ) and video games . Also I have always been fascinated with japanese history and culture . It is my only "youth culture" oriented interest, these days,and at 53, I am a pretty unusual fan . I look at it like rock/pop, there are al kinds of stuff, some of it kiddy product, most of it ok, and then some of it pretty good, often despite itself .
My interests are pretty diverse, Classical Music, ancient history, Anime, and The Grateful Dead ... not a lot of common ground ( though I have some "Classical" pals whom like the Dead ).
I see while I was out, we had a 4th of July war ... guess it is good I missed that !

Have you ever found someone who is 4 for 4 , and freaks on GD , Ancient History , Classical Music , and Thing that is called art ? ( Howl's Moving Castle was good too . I liked Spirited Away better , though . )

Yes , the forum seems a tad quiet since Sunday .

Just wait til I gear back up for THREE posts per day...well, okay--excitment factor might still be nil, but at least things will scroll off the Big Board a tad faster, eh?

BTW, you continue to impress this old forumite with your even-handed posting skills, which as compliments go, is utterly devoid of substance I suppose, but there you have it.

Is that like The William Tell Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval ?

And your blanking handle almost every time w/ the 11 . I'm currently on a 60's break now b/c of it . I mean it's in my head . For a few seconds after your handle is sung I'm thinking of manatees , snakes and all sorts of animals . It's like a Dr. Doolittle Freak Show in my brain .

And it's blanking beginning to happen with LiA . I have these deep thoughts of scholarly intent when his handle is sung .

No, just me as far as I can tell, and most of my friends would say that is a good thing ...
Seriously, if you like "Spirited Away," there is a good chance you might like his other films , such as "Princess Momonoke", or "My Neighbor Totoro" . Or the the films by the other "Studio Ghibli" directors like Takahata's "Graveyard of the Fireflies" ( seriously sad movie ) . These films are to other anime , what "The Godfather" might be to "Gilligan's Island" ...
"Paprika" by Kon should be the kind of thing a Dead freak might enjoy, pretty trippy .
